Mel Hood is an English artist based in Cheshire England, born in the South raised in the North.
Through his life experience and travels, art has been a constant companion following him on his journeys, whether that’s Cumbria to Colorado or Hong Kong to High Peak.
His pieces are influenced by his connection to the landscape whether that’s the open spaces of the deep mountain valleys or the fast paced metropolitan cities, his environment has always been at the core of his artwork.
Instinctively he is drawn to the natural image of his surroundings and questions its composition through different mediums, colours and texture whilst always exploring light and movement.
He primarily gravitates to paint and mixed media where these mediums allow him to experiment with all forms of expression and establish a narrative and a new perspective.
His work adorns the walls of both corporate offices and residential homes, in the UK, France, Spain, USA, Australia and the Far East.
Mel was an invited entrant to La Biennale di Venezia in 2002 with a conceptual design and more recently exhibited his collection ‘Order and Chaos’ which explores the dynamics of what "we think we see and what we actually see" at Northern Makes Gallery.
